Teaching assistant post overseas

Discussion in 'Teaching overseas' started by lancashire, Feb 25, 2011.

  1. Hi
    Does anyone know of any international schools who recruit Teaching Assistants/Learning Mentors through TES ?
    I have only found one so far and have been put off the school by negative feedback.

    Thanks

  3. Hi,

    I've just had a quick scout of international schools in Europe (a quick scout, so haven't looked at loads) most of them seem to suggest sending speculative CVs or attending recruitment fairs. The school I am going to work in (not in Europe) employ local TAs. This might be why there are so few TA jobs advertised on TES.
    This might be complete rubbish, just thought I'd try and help.
     
  4. Problem with TAs, whom we love, is immigration, if the country has an indigenous population.
     
  5. An international school in Russia is looking for TAs. It's on their website.

    No, but most schools will advertise for TA's on their websites. You may want to target a country/cities and start checking all of the international schools' websites in that area. The problem is that in many parts of the world the school will fill those roles with local hires. Some are willing to pay a bit more for someone with native English and experience but it is still not going to be close to an overseas hired teacher.
    Have you tried the British Forces schools?
